Sustaining Soil, Water and People

Since 1989, the Agroecology/Sustainable Agriculture Program (ASAP) at the University of Illinois, College of ACES has been working to, ”facilitate and promote research and education that protects Illinois’ natural and human resources, and sustain agricultural production forever.” We use a variety of methods to help farmers interested in organic and sustainable agriculture. Through newsletters, our website and field days we disseminate information on sustainable cropping systems and the broad range of issues related to sustainability, including organic production, certification and marketing. Many resources are available at the ASAP display, including copies of our newsletter, Agro-Ecology News and Perspectives, and updated information on organic research at the UI. In addition, we have SARE publications covering a wide variety of production and marketing topics. Visit our web site. For more information and resources come see us at the “Sustaining Soil, Water and People” display in the 2006 Agronomy Day Tent.
